Penny Black... I just can't resist all the fabulous images
And for my twosome.... well I decided to have another go with flowers and it was as much a hair pulling excercise for me as the one I showed you in my last post. First off I embossed a piece of white card with a Craftwell 'delicate dots' folder, wrapped some light grey and white ribbon around it, then attached it to a 7 inch card base. I have a fabulous NBUS die from Tonic called 'wild vine circle' which is a set of 4 dies so can be cut in several ways and I cut 2 with centres from white card and one without the centre from silver card which I layered up (offsetting the first 2 white ones). So far, so good but then it came to the flowers and pearl spray and after I managed to get them stuck in place and hopefully looking okay I added a silver peel off corner, some gems and a bow..... then I came to add a sentiment which I'd printed off and cut with a wavy edged circle die and I realised I'd stuck the flowers down so well that the circle wouldn't slip under them! So after a bit of thought (and a few expletives) I printed off another sentiment and cut it (freehand) into a banner which I actually think looks better than the original circle. Now I've only got another nine of those large roses to
and this shows the silver colour of the wreath better
I made this for the Win & Tonic February challenge and used the technique 'bling' the product 'Tonic' and the theme 'happy anything'
So that's it from me for today, I'm off to have a bit of a spring clean and sort through my folders of digi stamps and get them all backed up. Hope you all have a great week.
